Starz is doing an Evil Dead TV show.
Original franchise director Sam Raimi will executive produce the series and write and direct the first episode, with Rob Tapert also executive producing.
And … and … and …
Bruce Campbell will star, reprising his iconic career-making role as Ash.
The logline: “Bruce Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its ‘Evil’ grip.”
